Private Lawrence Saywell
Lawrence Saywell was one of the first men to enlist in the 2nd AIF in 1939. Tragically, this unassuming but friendly Private and POW escapee, became the last Australian to die at the hands of the enemy in the European theatre of World War Two: on VE Day, 8 May 1945, alone in a field by a country lane, in the remote hills of Bohemia.
